bosch dishwasher panel

newskilzAugust 21, 2012

Is it possible to apply a front panel to a a BOSCH ASCENTA #SHX3AR72UC. This has a flat front with a bar handle across. I know there are panel ready Bosch's but I am not sure I need to get these more expensive models. I keep seeing on GW postings of peoples displeasure of the 500 series but are all Bosch 500 series the same? I know everyone also seems to love the 800+ series but I'm not in that budget for a DW.

Please help. This is the last appliance we need to buy. Doing an entire remodel is overwhelming and all encompassing. As many of you know.

Thanks Again.

The problem with attaching a door panel to a dishwasher that is not designed as a panel ready unit is the door spring rates are not designed to handle a different weight door. The issues I've seen when people have done this is doors that drop too hard and fast if the door is too heavy leading to damaged hinges or a door that won't stay down if the door is too light
